Even though the show is back, the episode number has been halved; as we are getting only four episodes instead of the usual eight.
Colette Flight, executive producer of Wall to Wall productions (which produce the show) said to Variety: “Who Do You Think You Are? is back with more of our best-loved celebrities discovering incredible ancestors in their family trees.
“In these challenging times, the stories of courage, sacrifice and resilience they uncover are all the more resonant, but there’s also plenty of humour along the way too.”
The stars appearing in the new series are actresses Jodie Whittaker, Ruth Jones and Liz Carr as well as actor and comedian David Walliams.
Jodie, who is known for her role as Doctor Who, will uncover the reality behind a family myth to do with a family member and WW1 as well as learning some uncomfortable facts about her great grandfather in Yorkshire.
Additionally, Liz Carr, actress and disability activist, will actually take part in the investigation of one of her ancestor’s role in an attempted murder.
Moreover, David Walliams, the Little Britain star, will discover a traumatic experience one of his past relatives endured during WW1 and will actually learn that entertaining runs in the family blood.
Last but not least, Ruth Jones, co-creator and co-star of Gavin and Stacey, will actually find out about her family connection to the origins of the National Health Service.
And can we just say: what a flex!
